Board Message – September 2018

Hi Moms!

It’s FALL, ya’ll! There is so much to celebrate – kids heading to school, the chill in the air, football, pumpkin everything, big sweaters, fun farm adventures, and my personal favorite…the mystical changing colors of the leaves! Whatever new beginning this fall brings to you and your family, I hope it brings cheerfulness and friendship.

We are happy to announce that Moms Supporting Moms of Adams County now offers gift certificates! Do you have a relative or friend that is expecting their first bundle of joy? Perhaps you have a new neighbor that just moved from out of town and is looking for a way to meet new friends?  Now you can give the gift of motherhood support for $10!

I came upon MSMAC when my first child was 4 months old.  I often think how much I would’ve loved to have the support, knowledge, and friendship that the MSMAC women provided in those first months of life with a newborn.  I’ve heard many others share this same sentiment. Maybe you know someone expecting a child who could benefit from Helping Hands, baby-friendly events, or the MSMAC member forum on Facebook to ask questions or seek guidance.  A $10 gift certificate would make a lovely baby shower gift!

One of the most common responses to “Why join MSMAC?” is one I share with many others….I’m not from around here.  I came to Adams County, PA shortly before I had any children. Once I decided to be a stay-at-home-mom, I found myself in a kind of isolation because the few friends I had made didn’t have kids.  “Where does a transplant to the area go to meet other moms?” I wondered. After joining MSMAC, I found many wonderful women with whom I could share my parenting journey, as well as many children my son would soon develop friendships.  Maybe you have a new neighbor or colleague with children who is looking for a way to meet friends and explore the family-friendly events that Adams County has to offer. Why not bring them a $10 gift certificate and a batch of cookies to say “Welcome to the area!”?

If you are interested in purchasing a gift certificate, send an email to board.msmac@gmail.com.  What better way to show support to a mother than by giving the gift of MOMS SUPPORTING MOMS!?

Happy FALL and I hope everyone has a fabulous week ahead!

Love,
